Who’s a Loser now?

SMALLgoldFINALISTlogoAh, yay for my little Loser book — it just won a USA Best Book Award in Business: Writing & Publishing!


I’m throwing it a celebration party tonight 🙂


Now, file this under awesome: Below is a message from a woman named Vicki, sent to me via Goodreads. Read from bottom to top. Click to enlarge, click back to return to the post.

I NEVER took the time to write to and thank my favorite authors in all the years I was a reader. Never. And I was obsessed with many wonderful authors. I now know how blessed they would felt to hear from someone like me, someone who benefited from their books. I always held back out of a combination of intimidation and laziness, maybe self-centeredness, and not knowing the impact it makes. These interactions make my day.

I put out the call this week for more Leaving Annalise reviews and three people immediately jumped to it. Thanks!!! The reason that I asked is that BookBub picked Saving Grace to send to its 780,000 member mystery reader email list, so the Katie & Annalise books are going to be under some scrutiny; now is the time (like NOW) to leave your reviews if you’ve been putting it off. I will run Saving Grace at 99 cents again from November 19-23rd as a result. I AM SO DANG EXCITED TO GET ON BOOKBUB. The 6th try’s a charm 🙂

Last night I had the honor of speaking to the Brazos Writers in Bryan-College Station, TX. They were so much fun! I did Saving Grace in 60 days, and then we talked indie publishing. I fear I went over the time allotment, but it was all good.


Have a super weekend,

  1. I have heard a number of variations of your 60 Cities talk and last night was special. It really was, you were on fire, it was a really really nice group of people and they really got to see YOU. You were funny and self depricating and funny and smart and funny. So happy also that loser got some validation that it deserved. It is such a great book and this will help it find its audiance (the USA Best Book Contest).
    Quite a 24 hours. But, each 24 hours with you are pretty full of amazing stuff.

  2. “C*E*L*E*B*R*A*T*E good times, come on!!! There’s a party going on ’round here…” Leland and I broke out the milk and clinked glasses for you!! Whoo hoo and I knew you when, yay! This is just so darned awesome, amazing, fun, exciting… and still, I am not surprised because you worked so hard to get here.
